El Paso County elected officials and staff will host a public meeting on the extension of the Capital Program for the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority from 7-9 p.m. Thursday in the Centennial Hall auditorium, 200 S. Cascade Ave.
This is a work-session style meeting with the public encouraged to provide input on potential road projects. Elected officials from the City of Colorado Springs are expected to be joined by fellow PPRTA representatives from Green Mountain Falls, Manitou Springs, Calhan and Ramah.
The PPRTA board of directors has asked the county and other PPRTA members for a list of road projects that could be part of a ballot measure in November’s elections.
El Paso County’s currently recommended “A” list has about 20 road projects estimated to cost $80 million.
County engineer Andre’ Brackin said, “We’re hoping to get final direction on the county’s list from this meeting before submitting it to the PPRTA.”
